I think Tomlin's name missing is only due to the WGA not recognizing him for going fi-core during the strike.
Yes, the fi-core writers do not get nominated.

That's why Jeanne Marie Ford and Fran Myers are also missing from the Days nominee list:

UPDATE: Reading through that SON post again, it states those writers are no longer members of the WGA and never can be a member again, so Gary Tomlin, Jeanne Marie Ford and Fran Myers are not WGA members anymore, but are still allowed to work on WGA projects.

From Soap Opera Network's post of 2/12/08:
Here is the list of “Fi-Core” writers:
•“All My Children”: James Harmon Brown & Barbara Esensten (returned to work in late December)
•“The Bold and The Beautiful”: Kay Alden
•“Days Of Our Lives”: Hogan Sheffer (went “Fi-Core” in early January), Meg Kelly (went “Fi-Core” in late November), Victor Gialanella, Mark Christopher Higley
•“General Hospital”: Garin Wolf (went “Fi-Core” immediately), Michael Conforti
•“One Life To Live”: Gary Tomlin, Fran Myers, Jeanne Marie Ford, Michelle Poteet Lisanti (all went “Fi-Core” immediately)
•“Passions”: James E. Reilly, Shawn Morrison, Pete T. Rich (went “Fi-Core” immediately)
•“The Young and The Restless”: Josh Griffith, Maria Arena Bell, Paula Cwikly (all went “Fi-Core” immediately)
